Oh lord, I do not even know where to begin. First and foremost, it should be known I love my man Flavor Flav! And when I found out that this book was written exactly the way he talks, I was so excited to read it. And quite frankly, that's why I liked it! I love the fact it was written in "Flav language." That fact that it wasn't written well made it really seem like you were just sitting down with Flav, talking to him about his life. I really liked that aspect of the book. But

This book walks the reader through the iconic, Flavor Flav's life. It is an autobiography by Mr. Flavor Flav so his insights are interesting to say the least.

PROS: This book is a great, quick and easy, funny book. This humor is demonstrated as Mr. Flav describes anything from childhood stories to day to day activities.

This book is the story of Flav's life, as told by Flav.

I really enjoyed this book and in fact finished it in two sittings. I'm a fan from way back. It was easy to read and he writes the way he speaks so while I was reading I was able to picture him telling his story. I recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of Flavor, Public Enemy or simply interested in reading about a truly fascinating person.

Started strong. Finished a little weak. I really enjoyed it - but probably because I met Flavor Flav when I bought the book.
